Public improvements generally include improvements within County Right-of-Way, Easements and/or tracts. This includes but is not limited to private roadways, driveways, sidewalks, Stormwater facilities, on-site water quality enhancement facilities, etc.
Applicant will need to provide an Engineer’s Cost Estimate (ECE) based on the public improvements associated with the Final Plat and/or Development Plan. ECE should be based on the ‘Unit Costs for Improvement Projects’ with a 15-20% contingency depending on the project – discuss with your case engineer.
County Case Engineer will prepare the SIA once the ECE has been finalized. The draft SIA will be provided to the Applicant after the collateral letter of intent is provided and proposed uses are finalized.
